HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAAY) - Huntsville police are looking for a robber who set up his crime by making a phony appointment with an insurance salesman.

Police said the victim received a phone call from a man on a blocked cell phone who wanted information on an insurance policy for his grandmother. The salesman was given an address on Union Drive, and police say when he showed up there to go over the policy, he was met by a man in a hooded sweatshirt and ski mask.

The robber showed a handgun, took the salesman's cell phone and wallet and ran from the area after making the victim lie down.

No arrests have been made.
